Maltese tenor Joseph Calleja attended the Opera News Awards on the 10th April, where he was presented with an award for Contributions to the Opera World by Placido Domingo.
The two established performers are currently cast in a New York production of Verdi’s Simon Boccanegra, and this was the Opera News‘ 11th annual ceremony.
Alongside Calleja were Elīna Garanča, Waltraud Meier, Anna Netrebko and José Van Dam, who were also bestowed with this award. Calleja was also praised by the magazine’s senior editor Louise Guinther for his “golden-age voice”.
We would like to congratulate Joseph Calleja for this honour and his stellar work on stage.
